The Maui Energy Conference invites the public to join the Hawaiʻi community discussion on Electric Utility Ownership and Regulatory Models.

Under the direction of the Hawaiʻi State Legislature, the Hawaiʻi State Energy Office within the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism is undertaking a study on the future of electric utility ownership and regulatory models in Hawaiʻi.

HSEO has contracted with Boston-based London Economics International to carry out the study, which is expected to be completed by January 2019.
